What is a Root Canal?
A root canal, technically known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure designed to save a tooth that is severely decayed or infected. Inside each tooth, beneath the enamel and dentin, lies a soft tissue called the pulp.  When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, cracks, or trauma, a root canal is necessary to remove the infected pulp and restore the tooth’s health.

When is a Root Canal Indicated?

A root canal may be indicated if you experience:

  1. Severe Tooth Pain: Persistent toothache, especially when chewing or applying pressure.
  2. Sensitivity: Increased sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, even after the stimuli is removed.
  3. Swelling: Swelling or tenderness in the gums near the affected tooth.
  4. Discoloration: Darkening of the tooth, which may indicate pulp damage or death.
  5. Abscess: Formation of a pus-filled pocket at the root of the tooth.

Once the tooth is root canal treated, a crown restoration to increase the strength of the tooth and increase the viability of the tooth.

Advantages of Root Canal Treatment
Choosing root canal therapy offers several advantages:

  1. Preservation of Natural Teeth: Root canal treatment allows you to keep your natural tooth, maintaining your smile’s appearance and functionality.
  2. Pain Relief: By removing the infected pulp and alleviating pressure within the tooth, root canal therapy relieves the severe pain associated with dental infections.
  3. Prevention of Further Damage: Addressing the root cause of the problem prevents the spread of infection to surrounding teeth, bone and supporting tissues, protecting your overall oral health.
